After years of abuse, Roxi is an expert at deceiving the people around her. Everyone believes she has a picture perfect family, with a loving husband and a sweet little boy. They think she resides in a beautiful house and has a luxurious lifestyle, although, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Underneath the facade is a tormented soul, poised on the brink of giving up hope of ever finding a better tomorrow.

Luke’s past haunts him every single day. Not a second goes by without deep sorrow plaguing him. He will never forget what he’s done, he doesn’t want to. No one is more deserving of guilt eating away at them than he is… or so he believes. He spends his time, forever trying to make up for the one mistake that ruined the lives of his loved ones, as well as his own.

From the first time they meet, cracks begin to form in the mask Roxi wears and Luke sees right through them. The only question is, will he realize he’s worthy of love and step in to save her before it’s too late, or continue to think he’s undeserving of true happiness?

My Thoughts:

"Discover what brings you the most fulfillment and then do it. If you concentration on the important things, everything else will fall into place."
Roxi has been in an abusive relationship with her husband and as a little escape she goes on runs. One day she sees the persistent Luke who runs along with her. The attraction is obvious but she is married and he isnt interested in ruing anything. Luke slowly starts to notices the signs because he had once upon a time seen it before and want to help Roxie in any way that he can.
"People make mistakes, you learn from them, but you should'tn have to apy for then in the horrific ways for the rest of your life."
Wow, such a beautiful and heartbreaking book. At times I had to remind myself that this was just a book and that these were fictional characters, it was so realistic. I loved the characters. I loved the connection between Roxi and Luke. I loved how caring and understanding Luke was. I loved how Roxi eventually gotten the courage and strength and the voice to speak out and reach for help from her friends. I also loved the Roxi didn't jump into things straight after her husband she did want her space. She wanted her independence and to do things on her own before there's anything serious with Luke.  I loved her best friend for being supportive and not letting her go when she really needed her. This book was beautifully written and there was never a dull moment. In fact I couldn't put the book down I sat down and read the whole book in one day.

Overall I absolutely loved this book and it deserved 5 of 5 Stars. Highly Recommend!
